Thanks Melbourne! 30+ degrees all week but when the weekend comes and we get hit with an epic storm.

Not even surprised.

But bad weather has never stopped any Melburnian from enjoying the weekend before. Let’s not start now.

Check out the five best places in Melbourne to hide out the storm this weekend.

The Local Taphouse

Melbourne-proof with a retractable roof, heaters and a fireplace – The Local Taphouse is the perfect place to hide and pretend global warming isn’t really happening.

Plus live music every Friday and Saturday night. Works for us.

If you’re stranded on Chapel Street and need a drink or two to calm your nerves, Katuk is the cosiest place on the block.

A local favourite, Katuk has a huge range of beer, wine, cocktails and even jaffles.

Grab a couch by the fire and don’t let it go.


Trapt
377 Lonsdale St, Melbourne

What better way to forget about the terrible weather than just pretend it isn’t happening.

TRAPT is a bar and escape room in one, located in the heart of the CBD, that will transport you to worlds you could previously only imagine.

Located in the basement (score) of the heritage Keep & Co building, this is sure to keep you entertained during the floods.


Boilermaker House
209/211 Lonsdale St, Melbourne

When the Melbourne weather gets this bad, we like to hibernate at the Boilermaker House.

They offer a rustic and friendly interior, plus craft beer and malt whiskey to warm your heart.

And gourmet cheese. We feel better already.
